About the Westminster Kennel Club
The Westminster Kennel Club,
established in 1877, is America's oldest organization dedicated to the sport of showing dogs. It hosts the iconic, all-breed Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, the second-longest, continuously held sporting event in the U.S. after the Kentucky Derby and, since 1948, the longest nationally televised live dog show. The Club's mission is to enhance the lives of all dogs by celebrating the companionship of dogs and promoting responsible dog ownership and breed preservation. The Club advocates for purpose-bred dogs, with an understanding that each breed has a legacy and history that deserves to be taught, honored, and preserved. The Club uses education to raise awareness and encourage owners to conscientiously select dogs that are the right match for their families. The annual dog show-a conformation competition for purpose-bred dogs-and the Masters Agility Championship and Masters Obedience Championship-where dogs from all backgrounds are eligible to compete-make Westminster Week, with thousands of dogs from the U.S. and around the world, a pinnacle experience for any dog lover. "America's Dog Show" has captivated canine enthusiasts for more than a century. Learn more at westminsterkennelclub .
